You may not realize that Halloween is quickly becoming a popular time for weddings.

If you, or someone you know is planning a gothic-inspired, or Halloween themed wedding, you may want to pay attention.

I received lots of questions over the last few months about black wedding bouquets. Most brides are now designing (and even making) their own bouquets, and you can too!

It's really not as hard as you think. You just need an idea, and know what kind of flowers you like. Real or artificial? Over the top or simply elegant? Not that hard, right? If you can arrange flowers, you can make a bouquet. If you see something you like, copy it.

Your local craft store probably has a wedding section, and tons of stuff that you can use to make your own original bridal bouquet.

Bouquets come in many sizes and shapes, so don't worry if it's not traditional.... you're the bride after all! You can have whatever you want.

If you don't feel too confident in making one yourself, be sure take some pictures along of what you like when you meet with your florist, and they'll help you create the bouquet you've always dreamed of.
